Immigration Coach Background
We started our Immigration Coach service in response to requests from our clients who were comfortable preparing their own immigration applications, but who wanted:
- The added confidence of having an immigration lawyer review the application before submitting it to USCIS
- A flexible, lower-cost option for getting the assistance of an immigration lawyer
- The peace of mind of having an immigration professional on their team just in case something unexpected happened
- The confidence of knowing that all of the information they shared would remain confidential and be protected by attorney-client privilege
- The comfort of knowing that their information wouldn’t be sold by a technology company for marketing purposes
Navigating Around Common Immigration Mistakes
At the same time, we realized that people often ended up falling into at least one common mistake or pitfall when they were trying to prepare their application on their own:
Our online courses and application review services are designed to help you avoid these common mistakes.

Our Lead Immigration Lawyer
I help future Americans become citizens. I do this by helping people navigate the process of obtaining green cards, fiance visas, immigrant visas, and immigration waivers so that they can become permanent residents.
As an immigration lawyer in Boise, Idaho at the Schaefer Law Firm, I help people navigate the immigration process. I am a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), a national association of over 11,000 attorneys and law professors who practice and teach immigration law. I have also taught the immigration law clinic at the Concordia School of Law.
I have completed intensive consular officer training offered by the Department of State at the National Foreign Affairs Training Center in Arlington, Virginia, and have provided consular services in Lagos, Nigeria. I have an international background and have lived or worked in the United States, Europe, Asia, and Africa.
Prior to law school, I served as a communications officer in the United States Marine Corps and worked in both the private and public sectors. I previously worked as an associate attorney at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP in Washington, DC.
I am a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center. I graduated magna cum laude and was granted Order of the Coif recognition for graduating in the top 10% of my class. During law school, I was a member of the American Criminal Law Review and served as the Notes Development Editor.
My practice is limited to immigration and nationality law. I am licensed to practice law by the District of Columbia and Virginia.
